THE PEOPLE OWE THAT MONEY.
THE PEOPLE ARE WORTH $70 TRILLION.
THE PEOPLE OWE $16 TRILLION.
your Republicans borrowed most of that $16.
For wars and tax cuts over the years.
Now they protect the richest. Don't want to pay it back.
It's that simple, stupid.
Republicans: so greedy they lie cheat and steal to protect a few richest % at the top.
And your Marxist flag goes up the pole...
Your contention seems to be that 70 trillion dollars doesn't legitimately belong to the people who possess it. You seem to be saying that the government has a right to that money.
Is this correct?
Given that the government can't stop itself from spending more than it has in revenue, if the government consumes that 70 trillion dollars to cover the debt, and there is obviously no control of the deficit, when that 70 trillion dollars is gone there will still be a need for the government to get more money.
After that 70 trillion dollars is spent by the government, what is the next source of money the government will obviously need?
Also, that 70 trillion dollars belongs to the people who create the jobs. If you take that 70 trillion dollars, you also eliminate the jobs those people make possible. Now, you have created an entire nation of unemployed people.
If it's unequal distribution of wealth that concerns you, I'll tell you how to create a more equal distribution of wealth.
Let's start with (what should be) an obvious fact:
Wealth never has been, is not now, and never will be evenly distributed. It is an impossibility.
Nations with a more even distribution of wealth are coincidentally also the nations with the highest level of education of the population.
If you want a more even distribution of wealth here, how about developing a more educated population?
Your only other alternative is to canibalize the existing wealth to subsidize the very reason the wealth is less evenly distributed than you would like.
You're an ignorant fool.
